Welcome to Cornell Sailing

Books to prepare you for offshore cruising, by best-selling author Jimmy Cornell and the Cornell family. Corrections are published regularly on individual book pages.

From the first book I wrote, my aim was to write the kind of book I wished had been available when we left on our first voyage.

Jimmy Cornell’s new project: Aventura Zero

Jimmy’s fifth boat, Aventura Zero, is the prototype of the new Outremer 4Zero catamaran with zero carbon dioxide footprint at the heart of the concept. 

Unfortunately 2020 didn’t quite turn out as I expected: you can read the reasons for the end of the Elcano Challenge as detailed in the Aventura Zero blogs here:


I have been impressed and greatly emboldened by the general interest in my project, which shows just how many in the sailing community (and quite a lot of non-sailors too) are aware of the importance of this kind of project.
